Hi, just had a lovely, but busy weekend at my mum's. First we whizzed over to a 10th anniversary party on Friday night, seeing some friends that we had not seen for ages. Then we all had a trip out to Blackpool on Saturday. We went in the tower, looked at the aquarium, a dance show in the ballroom, a very strange 3D dinosaur film and then the circus. It was very good, but a bit long and not really aimed at children (it was Chinese acrobats) so Emma got bored after a while. Then we tried to do the lights but by the time we managed to get onto the promenade it was already 8.30. After 45mins of crawling along, Emma was bored and we decided to call it a night, so it was disappointing in the end. Never mind, we will forget the circus and start the lights earlier next year to see a bit more.
Emma is 4 this Thursday and I made her a card last night with some lovely disney chipboard princesses that I got ages ago and some old daisy bucket papers I still had in my stash. The 4 is a Tim Holtz grungeboard number, inked with a versa magic ink pad and sprinkled with glamour dust. I punched some coordinating flowers from the same papers with retro flower punches. Everything except the princesses are from the Craft Den.
